Yikes, those look soooo good.  I love ground lamb in pastry.  I will be making these too.

i cannot buy anymore cookbooks until I free up some more shelf space...need to deal with my cooking magazines.  I think I will donate my Bon Appetite and Food and Wine copies and just keep the Finecooking.  That would help a lot.

Season caught my eye too.

in case you haven’t seen it, here’s a link to his website recipe index.  I think I will try a few, starting with the roast beets.

I like the website also.  I visited it when it won the award and had forgotten about it.  I love the name too.

I know what you mean. I've cooked quite a lot from the Ottolenghi books I own but there's plenty (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) in them that I haven't tried yet.  I feel sort of the same way about Dorie Greenspan.  Ina Garten, too, even though I don't own any of hers.  Both of them do put out rather reliable recipes, though.  

 

I pre-ordered Nik Sharma's Season and Lillie O’Brien's Five Seasons of Jam. I'm tempted to cancel that last one and get the Kindle version (which is available now) instead.

 

Isn't the new Ottolenghi a sweets book?

No.  Sweet, the book he wrote with a Helen Goh came out last year.

The upcoming release is titled Ottolenghi Simple.

A fall release list from Eater: Best Cookbooks Fall 2018.  A section on drinks and wine books is included. It’s got a lot of the regulars, like Ina, Dorie, and Ottolenghi, but new names as well.

 Thanks. Looks like I should be stashing my pennies for the fall!  Oh wait ...  we no longer have pennies.  Well my nickels then.

I'm very much enjoying reading through Diana Henry's newest, How to Eat a Peach.  

It's a menu cookbook with ~ 25 menus, divided into Spring-Summer and Fall-Winter sections. Each menu is preceded by an essay that makes the book part memoir and part cookbook.  

I find menu cookbooks interesting to read for the opportunity to see how others choose to combine dishes and, as a reader, I'm not plowing through bunches of similar recipes for vegetables, meats or whatever.  

I haven't cooked from the book yet, but several of the recipes look very appealing and I suspect they will be reliable, as Diana Henry's recipes usually are.   

 

So far, the only thing I've made is the title recipe, the simplest dessert ever - perfectly ripe peaches sliced into chilled Moscato wine and enjoyed slowly so the peaches marinate in the wine and the wine is flavored with peaches.  

Lovely.

And did I mention that the cover of the cookbook is lightly flocked?  Just like a peach!

I bought Rose Levy Beranbaum's Cake Bible when it first came out.  It is my goto reference for cakes.

Some other titles for the next months:

 

Albert Adrià - "Tapas. Tickets Cuisine"

this is the English translation of the first Tickets book that came out in Spanish in 2013, not to be confused with the second book titled "Tickets Evolution"

 

 

Juliette Nothomb - "Totally Godiva: Life Is a Praline"

Godiva means chocolate history, but this book seems simplified for home use, so I'll pass

 

 

Marc Lepine - "Atelier: The Cookbook"

about time, Canadian fine dining restaurants need more book deals, I'm curious about this

 

 

Day + Fauchald - "Cocktail Codex: Fundamentals, Formulas, Evolutions"

Muldoon + McGarry - "The Dead Rabbit Mixology & Mayhem"

a couple releases for the cocktail aficionados

@teonzo  I have eaten at Atelier and it is an amazing experience.  They do not have menus there, instead everyone gets the same food, consisting of a number of courses.  I'll be curious to see what the book it about.

      I have no idea why they blurred the name..
      so i really would love to know the name of this cookbook.
      Has anyone seen it?

      I have Volumes 1 ,2 and 4 of Jean-Pierre Wybauw's Great Chocolate books are for sale.
       
      The books are in great shape!  There is some tape on the corner of the front of volume 1 that I used to keep it together after a drop.  Volume 1 is also autographed by the author (See pics below).
       
      I'm asking $150 for the lot OBO.
       
      Let me know if interested or if you have questions

      Good day eG peoples!
       
      I am going to purchase a copy of Larousse Gastronomique (English, because I cannot speak French as well as most French toddlers), and I am wondering which version you think is better and why? Let your opinions fly freely...hold nothing back!

      Any idea what is the best book for me? I am starting to love cooking, I just got great recipe of sauces from this book "Restaurant Style Barbecue Sauce Recipes" all I need is the proper technique for grilling. Thanks
    • By gibbs
      With Modernist Cuisine I waited a couple of years and ended up with a copy from the 6th printing run the advantage of this was that all errors picked up in the erratta had been corrected in the print copy.  I am looking to get modernist bread soon and wondered if someone had purchased it recently to check or if someone knew of hand if they have printed any additional corrected runs
